UMC Architects have been appointed by Panattoni for the design of a new speculative 115,000sqft logistics facility on the site of the former Kongsberg Automotive Plant in Basildon.
Known as Basildon 115, Panattoni’s 115,000 sq ft development will occupy a prominent position in an established industrial and distribution location in the heart of the Thames Gateway. It will include offices and parking for 92 cars.
The area has already attracted many household names including Tesco, Argos, Amazon, Costa Coffee and UK Mail. Basildon 115, in Christopher Martin Road, overlooks the A127 near its junction with the A132, approximately nine miles from junction 29 of the M25. Central London is about 30 miles to the west, and is easily reached via the A127, A12 and A13. This dual carriageway also connects Basildon 115 to Tilbury Docks and London Gateway.
UMC Architects are supporting Buckingham Group Contracting through the detailed design and construction phases of the project.
